Dan Watters, Ram V, Matthew Roberts and Dave Stewart bring the creature back from the depths this spring.
On the heels of James Tynion IV and Martin Simmonds’ adaptation of Dracula, Skybound and Universal have announced a second miniseries starring one of the Universal Monsters — Universal Monsters: Creature from the Black Lagoon Lives!
The miniseries will continue the story from the original movie while introducing some new characters: journalist Kate Marsden, who is following the trail of serial killer Darwin Collier in the Amazon. Dan Watters and Ram V will team up to write the miniseries, which will feature artwork by Matthew Roberts and Dave Stewart.
“We’re so thrilled to announce our second book in the Universal Monsters line.” Said Alex Antone, editorial director at Skybound. “Dan Watters and Ram V are two of the most exciting writers in comics, and to be able to turn them loose with longtime Skybound creators Matthew Roberts and Dave Stewart has been an absolute treat. And while James and Martin’s Dracula was an adaptation of the original film, Creature is a brand-new story featuring beloved Gill-Man. Each book in the Universal Monsters line will feel different from the last, with each creative team bringing their own unique flavor and passion to these iconic horror characters. I can’t wait to share what else we have planned!”

Dan Watters and Sebastián Cabrol present the seasons as god-like monsters.
It’s a good week for Dan Watters, writer of Home Sick Pilots, among other titles. Not only did Marvel announce a new Loki miniseries that he’s writing, but BOOM! Studios also revealed Seasons Have Teeth, a new miniseries he’s doing with artist Sebastián Cabrol.
The four-issue series features a retired photographer who tries to track down the physical embodiment of the seasons — each a powerful god-like monster. So yes, the seasons literally have teeth.
“I’m overjoyed to be writing this book for Sebastián,” Watters said. “From the dark depths of winter to the joys of summer, he brings such wonderful nuance to both human emotion and monsters—and in The Seasons Have Teeth we are bringing you both in abundance.”

The Asgardian god takes a road trip around the Marvel Universe this summer.
Dan Watters, the writer of, among other things, the excellent Home Sick Pilots, will make his Marvel debut this summer on Loki, a four-issue miniseries starring the Asgardian god of mischief.
Watters will work with artist Germán Peralta, whose work has appeared in Black Panther, Maestro and Strikeforce, among other titles, as they send Loki on a cosmic road trip of sorts.
“It’s hard to say what a delight it is to be making my Marvel debut, even more so to be doing it with the God of Stories himself—taking him all the way around the Marvel Universe and back again,” Watters said. “I can’t wait for all to see the beauty Germán’s art is breathing into this tale we have to tell you, full of magic, danger—and if Loki can’t help himself (he can’t)—quite a smidge of mischief.”

Dan Watters and Dev Pramanik will adapt the classic science fiction story into a graphic novel.
Titan Comics has announced plans to adapt the 1976 British science fiction film The Man Who Fell to Earth into a graphic novel by writer Dan Watters and artist Dev Pramanik.
The film starred rock icon David Bowie as an alien searching for water to save his planet, and finds wealth and fame on Earth — a parable about the current climate crisis.
“The Man Who Fell to Earth is a masterpiece of a film with an awful lot to say; about men, about the Earth, and lots of things in between,” Watters said. “There are ideas in the film, about climate crises and corporate greed, that are more relevant now than they were when Nicolas Roeg set out to make it. And now here we are. I think it’s high time to look at the world through Thomas Newton’s mismatched eyes all over again. Perhaps he’ll see something we’ve been missing.”

The series will feature stories told in red and blue.
If Batman has his Black & White series, then naturally Superman would get a “red & Blue” one. DC announced this week Superman: Red & Blue, an anthology miniseries featuring the Man of Steel told in shades of red and blue (or magenta and cyan, to be specific).
The first issue will include a Clark Kent story by John Ridley, whose name is all over DC lately, with artist Clayton Henry. Brandon Easton and Steve Lieber will have a “street level” story set in Metropolis.

DC’s annual Halloween anthology features new stories by John Layman, Paul Dini, Rafael Albuquerque, Tom Raney and more.
DC’s annual Halloween anthology will return in October with a new story set in the world of Batman & Dracula: Red Rain, among other stories.
Rafael Scavone and Rafael Albuquerque will co-write the story about vampire Batman, with art by Rafael Albuquerque. Albuquerque’s the co-creator of American Vampire, so he’s very familiar with fanged monsters. Released in the 1990s and created by Dog Moench and Kelley Jones, Red Rain was one of the earliest “Elseworlds” stories published by DC. It spawned two sequels.

Nalo Hopkinson, Kat Howard, Si Spurrier and Dan Watters join Gaiman for four new titles in the new line.
Neil Gaiman will return to the world of The Sandman in a new curated line for DC’s Vertigo imprint, called, appropriately, The Sandman Universe. The line will kick off with a one-shot that’ll set up the return of three former Vertigo titles and one new one.
“… it’s a huge sandbox with so many wonderful toys that nobody’s getting to play with right now,” Gaiman told Entertainment Weekly about why he decided to return to these characters. “I started feeling guilty. I liked the idea of getting the toys played with again, reminding people how much fun this is, and also getting the opportunity to work with some fantastic writers. Down the line, there will be fantastic artists as well.”
The project kicks off this August with The Sandman Universe one-shot special, which catches readers up on what’s been happening in The Dreaming, the realm where the Daniel, the current Sandman, rules. But Daniel’s gone missing, leaving chaos in his wake. The one-shot will also catch up with two other Gaiman creations who enjoyed their own success at Vertigo — Books of Magic star Tim Hunter and Lucifer, whose ongoing series ran for 75 issues and later inspired the FOX TV series of the same name.
